    Anyone sell ad space on vehicle? If not all year , just the winter months? I had thought a little about this before & the other day I saw a LCO in my area with a box truck like mine with a sign on the unused areas that read "advertise here" . Just wondering what you could charge & what you guys thought about this.

    I have been thinking the same thing as well. There are billboard trucks around here during special events. I could sell space on my trailer and keep it there for a year. Sorry to the other LCO's but you can't advertise on my trailer. LOL. I can see it now.....another LCO putting their name on my trailer.

    I've been trying to get Budweiser to advertise on my trucks. I guess the amount I want for it is a bit too much. Crown Royal and Jack Daniels is looking to sponsor vehicles. :p

    Sold space on an old white van a few years back. Made a small buck.

    A few weeks ago I saw an LCO riding around with a sign on the back of his trailer that said something like "Outdoor professionals choose Ocean Potion[logo] for suncare."

    I tried that but I had to turn business down because 4 other Lawn Care Companies wanted to advertise on my trailer! :p

    Seriously, I have thought about that also. If you have any commercial customers like fast food places or local small businesses that you mow for it can be a great thing for both of you. I don't have an enclosed trailer but I have 3' sides that can be used. The other idea I had was to actually use lights or lighted signs while parked to advertise. I don't do much at night but there are some neat light setups that can be used in the daytime. Still working on those details.

    Most business given the chance will go with buses,cabs and rolling billboard trucks in stead of a Mowing crew type truck. The reasons given me was that the mowing crew employees sometimes are not in uniform or are peeing in bushes and alot of other things(get my drift) That are unsuitable for there taste.
    But give it a try you may make a buck.

    Maybe that could be the slogan under the Budweiser logo "Guys who work shirtless and pee in bushes drink Budweiser"

    Top it off with a Hooters ad and you're good to go...LOL
